Archaeological Resource Centre (ARC) Open Day

Tuesday 30th May 2023 – 10am until 3pm

FREE tickets coming soon …

Open day for the ARC for visitors to come into the store to see the archaeological collections we have inside. Join us 10am until 4pm for all of this …

  • We will be showing some highlights of the objects we store from all periods of history
  • Opportunities to handle real archaeological objects
  • Chance to wash real archaeological finds so that they are ready to archive
  • An archive lottery where we will pull random boxes from the shelves for visitors to see
  • Activities for children such as designing you own Roman pot
  • Chance to ask our archaeological curators and volunteers any questions you may have about archaeology. We will try our best to answer them!

Recommended age 7+ though younger children are welcome.

Unfortunately no dogs (except guide dogs) are allowed inside the building due to the sensitivity of the collections.

If you are unable to to attend the ARC open day we are running FREE ARC tours on Wednesday’s and Friday’s on selected dates find out more here:
